I've been searching, with little luck, for a slim case (no front cover, either polycarbonate or silicone) that INCLUDES a function to act as a stand for typing. The basic design I want can be seen in the Marware SportShell convertible, but a video review makes it seem like the typing stand doesn't prop it up very far.

Any others out there?

I think the quirkycase has that option, read some neg reviews so far though.

There is also one to be released by Scosche http://scosche.com/products/sfID1/210/sfID2/365/productID/1923

I would stay away from the Marware SportShell Convertible.

that looks like what I want! Any idea of how sturdy the feet are? Having a hard time finding reviews anywhere.

No clue, i think it just recently started shipping.

It is funny because when i looked at it the other day on their website i thought, gee, who would want a case/stand that just did that? I'm happy to have found someone that did and be able to point you to it.

I don't think i have read about anyone being dissatisfied with their cases from them at all if that helps. I'm pondering the Squish Skin one for myself at some point.

Yep, I'm the someone that does! Very useful. I really like the Apple case, specifically for that reason...I use the onscreen keyboard a LOT, and having it propped up is essential for that. What I don't like about the Apple case is that it's got the front flap that basically makes it almost twice as thick (maybe 1.5x), so I want something that lets the iPad be slim, like it's supposed to be.
